Alcohol Ink Background Technique & Video

Hello crafty friends! I hope that you're having a wonderful holiday season. Thanks to a reduced work schedule (yeah for vacation time!), I have found more free time to create just for fun...that's the best crafting time! I had a bunch of tags left over from the LetterIT release and decided I wanted to use them in an art journal layout. The above project, combined with an alcohol ink background technique, was the perfect way to spend an afternoon! Close up photos below, along with a video and a link to my Big Picture Classes, which features the alcohol ink technique along with four others, all developed by Wendy Vecchi and focused on using her fabulous products! (All techniques demonstrated with Wendy's permission!) Happy Crafting!
